and all of a sudden when driving, it will just wont go into 5th gear, it will stay in 4th. I have

It seems to me that it is a problem with your overdrive. Overdrive will keep you in fourth gear. Try turning over drive on and off then disconnect your battery and reconnect it to reset the system. If that doesn't work get the car checked at your dealer because driving it to fast in 4th gear will result in transmission failure costing you more money better to get it fixed now
